5 Tips For Planning A Last Minute Vacation

7/7/2017 12:00:00 AM

Sometimes it’s hard to avoid the siren song of the beach (or city, or theme park) and resist taking a summer vacation. If you can’t take it anymore and need a few days off, here are five of our best tips for planning a last minute vacation with amazing luxury travel from The Franklin Chauffeur.


There are many different travel websites centered around summer vacation deals, so start by browsing there. Many hotels put rooms that they haven’t been able to fill online for very low prices, which benefits last-minute summer vacation travelers. The Franklin Chauffeur has great prices every day of the year, even for last minute summer travelers, so don’t be afraid to combine your last minute excursion with luxury travel.


If you can’t find anything online right away, pick up the phone and give the resort a direct call. Many rooms aren’t updated right away online, so talking to someone over the phone might get you a better room than you saw online. The front desk staff can also typically negotiate prices over the phone, so you could potentially get an even better rate for your last-minute summer vacation.


If you are a last-minute summer vacation traveler by nature, sign up for e-newsletters with cheap travel deals so that you will get them directly in your inbox when they are available. These last-minute deals will allow you to spontaneously and inexpensively plan trips you might not otherwise be able to go on.


If you are a last-minute summer vacation planner, you might not be able to have your pick of destination or hotel. It’s important to maintain a high degree of flexibility so that you won’t risk being disappointed with what you end up doing. If you can increase your level of flexibility, you will dramatically increase your chances of loving what you do.


Luxury travel is a great option for every occasion, and a last minute summer vacation is no different. Partner with The Franklin Chauffeur and you are sure to have a wonderful time without any stress.
